  1. Hot N’ Cheesy Kale & Artichoke Dip Recipe
Chips with Cheesy Kale & Artichoke Dip in a Pyrex Bowl

It’s official: Kale is the new spinach in my house. Don’t worry though, we eat so many greens that I still have spinach in my refrigerator, it’s just not as well-loved. Ouch. Don’t tell my spinach that though.

Sorry, what was that? I’m totally years behind on the kale craze? Oh, that’s nothing I didn’t already know already. I’m just not a craze kinda gal, I guess. A day late and a dollar short, story of my life.

I did get around to trying kale in a hot dip – really, is there any other kind?- instead of spinach and let me tell you, this was some major yum.

It’s still hot, cheesy rich goodness that has your eyes rolling back in your head in thanks.  I swear it’s the cheese that does it.

 Now, this is a large and in charge kale and artichoke dip, the amount shown in the pictures is only half of this recipe below! We only had two guests coming for dinner, so I knew that my hips did not need leftover kale dip tempting me in the middle of the night to sneak down for a midnight snack.

If you are making this for a larger party, make the whole recipe but if it’s for two to four people, half of this recipe will suffice.

Unless of course, you want a midnight trip to the fridge for leftovers, in which case go ahead and make the entire recipe!

Happy cooking everyone!
